Nest Egg Advice… At No Cost

Posted on 09. Jan, 2006 by in Saving & Investing

The Wall Street Journal today put together a small list of free advice guides on the web. Although many of the guides are useful, there was only one that pertained directly to readers of this blog: A Guide to Your Nest Egg.

For a series of articles designed to help retirees find ways to stretch and preserve their savings, check out the Fall 2005 issue of FDIC Consumer News. The articles include links to other helpful tools, as well. For example, an article discussing when to tap Social Security benefits and retirement savings includes a calculator for figuring out the age at which you would “break even” if you start taking your benefit before your full retirement age. (It’s found online at www.socialsecurity.gov/OACT/quickcalc/when2retire.html.)

The online version of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.’s guide, which also has a true-false quiz, is available at www.fdic.gov/consumers/consumer/news/cnfall05. You can get a hard copy by writing to this address: Fiscal Fitness for Older Americans, Pueblo, Colo., 81009. Or call the Federal Citizen Information Center (888-878-3256) weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern time.
